Re: 2013 Live Commentary

I don't see the match, but Goffin made 12 forehand winners in that second set which he won 6-3, despite 5 double faults in the beginning of the set. Now 6-1 6-3.

Re: 2013 Live Commentary

Cilic is such an idiot it's unreal.

Holding easy until 4*-5. Typical clown shanked the short ball, now set point.

edit: Good clutch play, saves SP and holds

Tennis Fucking Sucks


Federer was the pioneer of first-strike all-court tennis. This is the real tennis and the beautiful game. Never forget the beauty of what was tennis. Nadull and Fakervic don't win tennis matches. They simply outlast their opponent with endless grinding and stamina. That is ugly. Beautiful tennis is gone now. Never forget the good days of real tennis.


I respect Pure Tennis. First-strike, all-court, offensive tennis. Players who succeed here can succeed in both an offensive and defensive eras of tennis. Impure grinders like Nadull, Djokovic, and Murray could never win in an offensive tennis era.

Viktor's forehands are WTA quality, makes Goffin look like Fed out there

“There’s so many athletes, tennis players around the world,” he continued, trying to put his life into some kind of perspective, “they want to be the best in what they do. They want to succeed. Many of them, they don’t succeed in the end. I’m fortunate to have this opportunity and succeed.”

Re: 2013 Live Commentary

Troicki actually played 2 good points from 30-30 to break Goffin

Re: 2013 Live Commentary

edit: Cilic saved 3 set points and then UE to hand Lorenzi the set

Re: 2013 Live Commentary

Laaksonen gave Berdych a taste of his own with a winning return to get a chance to break back in the first set, but Berdych held, and won the first set 6-3.

Re: 2013 Live Commentary

Great play from Goffin to break Troicki at 4*-4

Troicki was 3-0 up in the 3rd, now 4-5*.

Cilic was broken from 40-0 . Down a break against Lorenzi, a set all

Re: 2013 Live Commentary

Horrendous tight forehand error

... and another tight error from the BH side

Don't choke Goffin

Re: 2013 Live Commentary

Goffin choked. 4 UEs serving for the set and gifted the break.

No 1st serves when serving for it

He pushed a lot, but he actually played points out and didn't just kinda tank the game which a lot of players would've after a very frustrating set
